Tony Price is the speaker at the Friday, May 10, 2024, meeting. Tony, a military veteran, is the Executive Director of the Gold Star Ride Foundation dedicated to honoring the families of those who have offered up a family member killed while serving in the U.S. military. For more than a decade, Tony has traveled the country, on a motorcycle, to visit over 490 families. The stories of his travels and the families impacted by these recognitions are informative, inspiring, at times tearful, at times entertaining, and fulfilling. They are written up in his book Yours, Very Sincerely And Respectfully: The True Story of the Gold Star Ride Foundation’s 2018 Journey Across, Around and Through America, Honoring Gold Star Families.

The theme of Tony’s presentation is: “The Gold Star Ride – Recognizing the Families of Fallen Veterans”.
